How Much is Life Insurance?

How much is life insurance? What are the types of life coverage? And how do you sign up for life insurance?

I talked about these points with Erin Gobler at Sound Dollar – here’s what we discussed.

  • The reason term life coverage is more affordable. Term life insurance is cheaper because the coverage ends after a certain period.
  • Through term insurance, you’re essentially ‘renting’ the death benefit for the pre-determined length of the coverage.
  • On the other hand, permanent insurance remains active until you die.
  • The insurance company knows you’ll die at some point, so they must collect more premiums to cover the death benefit.
  • To sign up for life coverage, your best bet is to find a financial professional who understands life insurance and types of policies and get their advice.
  • But if you’re a DIYer, numerous resources (including online life insurance calculators) can help you determine the amount of life coverage you need and what type of policy may be best for you.
